The School Commission, Parents Club, staff and principal have agreed that all students attending St. Vincent de Paul School are required to wear the school uniform. The school uniform is a symbol of a student’s pride in him/herself and the school; therefore, uniforms must be appropriately sized and must be appropriately worn. Every student is expected to be in complete uniform unless he/she has a valid, written excuse from his/her parents for that day only. Our uniform policy will be strictly enforced. Failure to adhere to the uniform policy will result in a uniform infraction slip.

Students in grades PS-8 need to be in full dress uniform Monday-Friday but have the option of wearing their school sweatshirt on Fridays; however, full dress uniform (including sweater) is required on all Mass days and on any other days designated as full dress days. Exception: Campfire and Scout uniforms may be worn on meeting days.

Any clothing, including outerwear, shoes and non-uniform dress apparel, deemed distracting by the administration is not appropriate. Also, holiday attire, unless specified, is not appropriate.

Brands (logos and character styles) on backpacks, lunch boxes, and supplies need to be appropriate for our school
environment.

Please put your child’s name on all uniform clothing items.
